with their children. police are on the ground missed the school searching room to room. connecticut state police have scheduled a news conference for 1:00 eastern. joining us on the phone, msnbc analyst and former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, give us your read, your assessment, on this situation? >> well, we know that the shooter is dead. we don't know whether that is by law enforcement action when the first responding officers went in and confronted him or whether, as we saw in the portland, oregon, mall shooting this past week, whether the shooter actually shot himself committing suicide. we know that at least two handguns were found. you know, that takes us back to april 2007 when the shooter at virginia tech, in that case, who killed 32 and wounded 15, also had two handguns. what it does suggest, though, is that this individual went in there with carrying two handguns and perhaps other ammunition. he went in there apparently to confront someone. we're told that confrontation took place in the office of the school and may have spilled out from there. we're still trying to understand the nu
, connecticut. i'm afraid the answers we try to provide in the next hour to the most pressing questions will feel inat adequate to all of us, but we'll try with an admitedly heavy heart. here is what we know. there are new details to report among the 28 people dead are 20 schoolchildren, ages 5 to 10, and the gunman, who also killed his mother, prior to the massacre. this is the nation's second deadliest shooting. 33 people died at virginia tech in 2007. at this hour, investigators are working to learn as much as they can about the gunman. he's been identified as 20-year-old adam lanza. so far, authorities have not spoken publicly about a possible motive. ♪ >> the community is in mourning, at least 2,000 gathered for a vigil last night at a local church, lighting candles and singing hymns while trying to console each other. many in shock. >> when i saw a shooting, i -- i couldn't even process that, a shooting here in newtown, and it was hours later when they started coming out with the numbers, and you just -- it didn't seem real. it seems like this is wrong. a lot of information toda
lautenberg is focused on big things. the tragedy in connecticut, gun safety, the hurricane sandy that he is focused on. he is not worried about politics. if you read that statement it was kind of a slap to cory booker. don't think about politics right now. >> no question. mark murray, thank you. >> thanks, chris. >>> it was the night before cliff-mas and all through the house was anything stirring? washington and wall street are bracing to go over the cliff. we're breaking down what it means for the economy next. >>> and later this hour a moment of silence to honor the victims at sandy hook. we'll bring that to you live. and you can see from his schedule the president will also be observing that moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. eastern. you're watching "the daily rundown only on msnbc. victor! victor! i got your campbell's chunky soup. mom? who's mom? i'm the giants mascot. the giants don't have a mascot! ohhh! eat up! new jammin jerk chicken soup has tasty pieces of chicken with rice and beans. hmmm. for giant hunger! thanks mom! see ya! whoaa...oops! mom? i'm ok. grandma? hi sweetie! she
of the connecticut state police press conference. >> -- shooter's identity. >> not going to confirm the identity of the shooter. wl we're not prepared to do that. we have a tentative identification. we will, we will identify the shooter at an appropriate time. just for our investigatory purposes it's not appropriate to do that right now. yes? [ inaudible question ] >> again, it's part and parcel of what we do. i told you initially that we will leave no stone unturned as we're looking at every facet of this investigation. whether it's the shooter, any of the victims, we're going to look at everything and we certainly will go in and out of state and we'll work with fellow law enforcement including federal agencies if we need to to answer every single question to exactly what transpired here and it will be a time-consuming process but we will get it done. [ inaudible question ] >> right now one shooter, yes, sir. [ inaudible question ] >> it was k through 4, kindergarten through fourth grade. that's the school. [ inaudible question ] >> they were all students of that school, sir. [ inaudible questi
. pete, where are connecticut state police focusing today as they try to uncover more behind the reasons of adam lanza? >> well, there's a huge wide range of what they're doing, thomas. they're interviewing witnesses still. they haven't even gotten to interviewing the children yet. that's going to be a very difficult process to do, very delicate one is the way they described it. there were two adult survivors. they have the history of the weapons, the history of the ammunition, all of that to look at. now, the hopes were fairly high that they might have a breakthrough with adam lanza's computer that was at his mother's home at the scene where he shot his mother before this all began. but there's some pessimism about that now because he damaged the computer, took the hard drive out of the computer, damaged that further. they knew that when they got it. they thought well, you know, maybe we can get something out of it but i'm told the initial attempts to get information have been unsuccessful. they will obviously try to continue to work at that. but they have yet found no answer to the que
of connecticut sandy hook elementary would be filled with the sounds of children and their teachers. however, today, that school remains a crime scene, closed indefinitely just days after 20 small children and six educators were murdered, brutally extinguished in an act of violence that has gripped the hearts and minds of this nation. 26 souls lost and today, the first funerals will be held for two of the youngest victims. 6-year-old jack pinto, a new york giants fan, and noah pozner, whose twin sister survived the shooting. we are also learning new information about the connecticut state police investigation, including that the gunman, adam lanza, had enough ammunition if given more time to shoot hundreds of students in the halls of sandy hook. >> every single facet of the weapons will be analyzed. every single round of ammunition will be looked at and examined for any kind of physical evidence. i alluded yesterday to the volume of rounds, for example, that were seized or recovered. each singular round will be examined. >> president obama last night visited with families who lost loved ones
conference on the latest on the school shooting in newtown, connecticut. today, we are focused entirely on newtown. approximately an hour and a half outside of new york city, newtown, connecticut, is a small commuter town locateded in fairfield kocounty. it is a predominantly middle-class white community with approximately 30,000 people. they have several schools and synagogues and churches and it has a rotary club and basketball league like many other towns, but yesterday, as many of you know, newtown became the latest statistic of what is a disturbing pattern of mass gun violence. a gunman opened up fire against schoolchildren and staff at sandy hook elementary and killing at latest count 20 children and 6 adults. the president addressed the nation yesterday in response to the tragedy. >> as a country, we have been through this too many times, whether it is an elementary school in newtown or a shopping mall in oregon or a temple in wisconsin or a movie theater in aurora or a street coroner chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. >> the
and a place of worship wherever they choose. >> connecticut's governor dan malloy told abc news this morning that speedy action by first responders may have very well prevented an even worse tragedy. take a listen. >> we surmise that it was during the second classroom episode that he heard responders coming and apparently at that decideded to take his own life. >> what else, michelle can you tell us about those final moments before adam lanza decided to kill himself? >> reporter: well, those are certainly the detailsa we're hoping that we'll learn about, perhaps at this press conference or in the coming days, exactly the length that adam lansa had to this school, in fact what happened, perhaps they'll have a little bit better timeline. when first responders and law enforcement arrived on scene, they arrived to a very active shooter situation, a very chaotic situation and of course what was left behind is just devastating in terms of what they had to cope and deal with in terms of not just the emotions of this, but also processing that crime scene. so that they're say whether take the most ti
in connecticut is so much greater than the pleasure that shooting at targets with a 30-clip would give to target shooters. really it's a no brainer to me. and the shooter in the aurora theater had a clip with 100 rounds of ammunition. that's why he was able to shoot up that whole theater in two or three minutes. and there were military personnel in there. if he had just been -- if he had had to stop, they could have tackled him. they could have taken him out. >> the reason he didn't have to stop, governor, is because he had those hundred-round clips. and let's not forget, governor, in newtown one of those kids had 11 bullets in him. we're talking about some unbelievable things here. >> unbelievable evil. you're absolutely right. one of the points the congresswoman made and we should remember this is in aurora although the majority of the victims were adults, there were two 6-year-old and 7-year-old and there was one 6-month-old baby. 6-month-old baby that got killed. so this isn't the first time we've lost our kids. >> when does it end? >> when does it stop? >> and when is the legislative respon
the past hour about the deadly school shooting in newtown, connecticut. good day, everyone. i'm alex witt. it is a day of questions and fresh insight about the sandy hook elementary school shooting. there is information about the gunman, how he entered the school and killed 20 children and six adults before he killed himself. >> we have established the point of entry. it's believed he was not voluntarily let into the school at all. that he forced his way into the school. but that's as far as we can go on that. >> in a moment, chris janzen in connecticut with more on that news conference. first compelling new information about the shooter and what he did in the days before the attack. nbc's pete williams is in washington. pete with a good day, what have you learned? >> reporter: alex, the connecticut authorities have not yet formally identified the gunman, but we're been told and i think it's widely known it's adam lanza is his name, 20 years old who was living with his mother. they say the shooting actually began that morning about three miles from the school at the home where he was livi
. and i believe what causes that change is that 20 of the victims in newtown, connecticut, were young children. and there is not only a heartbreak across our country about this, not only anger, but i think there's guilt. and we all ought to feel guilty because as a society, what the attacks in newtown said to us is that, we have failed to fulfill what would seem to be our most natural -- natural law. if you will. responsibility which is to protect the safety and lives of our children. >> senator joe lieberman talking on the senate floor saying they ought to feel guilty, referencing himself and his other colleagues, that americans aren't protected by stricter gun laws in this country. the senator there eye were an impassion -- with an impassioned speech. but even as both members, or even as members of both chambers of congress are advocates for strong gun regulations in the wake of this tragedy, there are some who would argue that more control of firearms is not the answer. joining me now is one of them, georgia republican congressman jack kingston. sir, it's good to have you here. i h
but the commander in chief. joining me from newtown, connecticut, is chris jansing, host of "jansing & company." chris, we heard a lot of different things about flowers running out of local shops there in town because of the outpouring the support for the victims. as we watched the scene there grow. describe what you've been witnessing as you people prepare to bury two of these little 6-year-olds. >> everybody that i talked to, thomas, in this community,s especially the families have told me that they feel the support here and literally around the country. i was talking to principal hochsprung's daughter, erica. we heard from her this morning. she said one of the things that has heartened her is hearing from teachers all around the country, house inspired they would have been. she said if my mother would have had one message to anybody, it would have been read a book to a child. and they've been overwhelmed by social media, support that they've gotten. then if you look behind me. i've been to this memorial in downtown as early as 6:00 in the morning and as late as 11:30 at night. and families
the 27 victims in connecticut. >> why is it that somebody needs a magazine with 20 shots in it and have 40 lives at risk? >> we'll talk exclusively with nancy pelosi about what can be done to control guns. and, of course, the looming fiscal cliff. speaker boehner today turns to his plan b. >> our plan b would protect american taxpayers who make $1 million or less and have all of their current rates extended. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. we here at nbc and msnbc and our entire family are relieved and joyful today that the escape of our friends and colleagues. chief foreign correspondent richard engel, producer gazi and john questra from kidnappers in syria where they had been held out of communication for five long days and nights. we first heard from richard last night and waited to hear that he and the team had crossed the border into tshgy. they had been blind fold and bound and only broke free after their candidate kidnappers came into contact with a rebel militia leading to a fierce firefight. here's richard engel describing the moments before their kidnappin
as they're available in the united states, including in connecticut, is not something that i support. [ inaudible question ] >> i think the whole issue of assault weapons and weapons that can easily be converted to assault weapons is a question that we really need to have in this country. obviously, the discussion can begin about the size of the magazines and i think that that's a good discussion to h e have. i would love to hear the people argue that we need 30-round magazines and that that somehow is tied to the right to bear arms. >> one of the arguments is that the -- >> sportsmen. >> -- that the ealliance puts forward -- [ inaudible ]. >> they say that because they know they can prevent a vote or have previously been able to prevent a vote in the united states congress on the issue. they have no desire to have a vote on a national basis. again, i want to reiterate that i'm not talking about basic weapons or weapons that are used in hunting. to the best of my knowledge, if anyone uses an assault weapon in hunting with a 30-round magazine, i would be quite surprised by that. and,
in connecticut. the national rifle association finally broke its silence on the newtown shooting. a statement released today by the organization said, in part, the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. the language is similar to president obama's call for meaningful action, but contribution from the nra remains to be seen. but several republican politicians are already headed in the direction of change. michigan governor rick snyder saw republicans in his state legislature pass a bill to allow guns in schools and day care centers. the bill was passed one day before the tragedy in newtown, connecticut. today the republican governor vetoed the bill. according to the detroit news, snyder vetoed the bill because it wouldn't allow schools and other public locations to opt out of its provisions. in the past 24 hours, republican members of congress said that some gun restrictions are worth looking into. senator susan collins of maine, congressman charlie dent of pennsylvania and lindsey graham of south carolina, they are all pro-gun. they are a
through the waiting period that connecticut law requires. but he was able to draw from the gun collection of his mother, nancy lanza, who of course he ended up shooting as well. >> earlier today, police said they had good evidence of a possible motive. we did not hear anymore about that evidence in that last news conference. at this point, any indication what that evidence might look like? perhaps a note? >> no, actually, all we know is that it came in response to a question from lester holt about e-mails or writings that adam lanza may have been left around or had been found by investigators and in response to that, lieutenant van, the spokesman for the state police, said there is a lot of good evidence that we've been able to collect. so we can infer that this might involve some writings or things that he's posted, somewhere online, but we don't know that for sure yet. >> michael isikoff, there are still so many, many, many questions that have yet to be answered here. so hopefully we get a little bit more information from police tomorrow. thank you, sir. do appreciate your work, as alwa
. but whatever you think of it as policy it is not for gun owners. >> joy, i was in newtown, connecticut, and today flew across the country. here i was in los angeles, as far away as i could be from connecticut in the continental united states. and i'm greeted today by the los angeles times lead headline saying the police chief of los angeles saying this is a new reality. those are his words, and that is why he is going to re-deploy los angeles police to cover every elementary school and middle school in the los angeles school district every day. there will be a uniformed police presence at every school at some point in every day of the school year. this is an extraordinary nationwide reaction to what happened in connecticut. and i have to say, i am convinced that this is not like any reaction we've seen before to one of these mass murders. >> yeah, absolutely, and what a shame, right, to have to live in a country where you have to have armed police officers protecting your children. i mean the one place that your children are supposed to be safe outside of your home is school. they're i
their way to connecticut work their way up i-95 from states in which there are substantially easier gun laws, and guns in some cases sold under exceptions to the rule for gun shows. those guns work their way up i-95 and get to places like new york city or cities in our state, and i have always said and will continue to say that those exceptions and the absence of a tougher federal legislation is not good for connecticut, not good for our cities, and, again, i also have firmly believed that these high capacity magazines are extremely dangerous. having said that, being in the top five, i think there have been people -- people have previously thought they have done enough in connecticut. i'm not saying i was one of those. i doubt that there's any one of those left. [ inaudible question ] now that it's been pointed out and i have taken the time to -- we could be compliant with the previous assault weapons ban limitation by going from a -- there's a common sense piece of legislation that could be taken up in the next session. >> we've been listening to a press conference by connecticut governor d
on friday and the investigation conducted today around the clock by connecticut state police including the revolution that the gunman adam lanza brought an arsenal and hundreds of bullets with him in to the halless of sandy hook elementary. enough to kill everyone in that school. >> we're going to do everything that it takes to ensure that we uncover every bit of evidence, that we examine every facet of it. we conduct as many interviews with everyone we need to do to paint a clear picture of exactly how and why this tragedy occurred. >> joining me now from newtown is nbc news national investigative correspondent michael isocoff. as we hear police say they want a clear picture, it seems to be more cloudy than even what we heard yesterday, including whether or not adam lanza i tended the elementary school. had even a link to the school. >> reporter: well, we do believe he attended the school years ago but we were told he had no connection to the school. no current connection to the school. he wasn't working there. he wasn't volunteering there. he had no interaction with the school. at th
continues for the newtown, connecticut, massacre. new information this morning that gunman adam lanza apparently wanted to become a marine. dan bury news types reports that if it didn't happen he wanted to join another branch of the military, but his mother squashed those plans because lanza didn't like to be touched. profeelers and jennegeneticists are -- he's studied the psychology of mass killers and terrorists and wrote about the similarities in the new york times op ed. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> your piece was titled "what drives suicidal mass killers" and you wrote for years the conventional wisdom has been that suicide terrorists are rational political actors while suicidal rampage shooters are meanta willy disturbed loners, but they have far more in common than recognized. >> they have a tremendous amount in common. underneath it all is the desire to kill and be killed, but really, i point to three major factors, mental illness and suicidal desires, perceived victimization. they feel that their pain is someone else's fault or they've been oppressed and bullied
's chris januarying is live for news newtown. chris, i know we just heard there from the connecticut state police but let's talk about what's happening around you today o. >> reporter: think the significant thing we heard from lieutenant vance a few minutes ago was confirming that that part of the investigation is over and some of the bodies have begun to be released to the families. i have talked to many of the religious leaders in this community. of course, they have spent the last 48 hours or so trying to console their congregations and now many of them are planning for funerals. at least eight of them at the local catholic church, one at the local synagogue. we are beginning to hear from the families of the victim -- victims as well. 6-year-old emelie parker's dad held a small news conference last night and robbie parker talked about his daughter. here's what he said. >> we find comfort, reflecting on the incredible person that emelie was and how many lives she was able to touch in her short time here on earth. emelie was bright, creative and very loving. emilie was always willing to t
for us. >> reporter: thank you. >> joining us now from washington, d.c., is connecticut congressman john larson issuing a statement asking colleagues to pass tougher gun control laws. to do nothing is to be complicit in those assaults. good morning congressman. >> good morning. >> let me offer my condolences in the tragedy in your state. yesterday, all we knew was the name of the murder. now we know the names of the victims. i'm happy to shift our focus to them, but it's so hard to hear their names, to hear how they died. is it now, finally the moment when congress and the president will act on gun control? >> you certainly have to hope so. i know in talking to friends and family as you just reported, the more you hear these details, the more horrific it gets. the innocence of these kids and to see the pictures and there's just -- we are broken hearted in connecticut. there's a point where you have to say enough. this is -- listen, i said in that release, i'm not sure that all the measures that we would hope to enact would ever be able to prevent an incident like this. i know, certainly,
that happened in 2012, lead to -- leaving at least 88 dead. the tragedy in connecticut is described as indescribable. 27 people, including 18 children were shot to death. it goes on to say -- 16 of the mass shootings this year, including one in georgia at a korean health spa back in february. it goes through other incidents. jackson, tenn., at a nightclub. a high school in rural ohio. a psychiatric hospital in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. it goes on from there. we are talking about preventing shootings. is there a role for the government or society? what do you think? republican line, silver lake. caller, hello, c-span. -- caller: hello, c-span. it has to do with a lot of things. it sounds like this man at 20, he did not have a strong father figure in his life, which should have. there is so much of that going on in this country today. host: what does that mean for you, paul? caller: i have three boys. i have taken my son's hunting and we have been shooting firearms since they were seven. they have never regretted it or had any trouble. they are raised operate. -- they are raised up ri
to land, we would see those higher amounts push back into central massachusetts and connecticut. for the most part, new york city, about an inch or so. new york, connecticut, western massachusetts, we should pick up about 3 inches out of this storm. >> all right, dylan, thanks so much. >>> coming up -- a million-dollar t-rex smuggling ring. >>> adam lanza's dna will be studied. >>> plus, who are hollywood's most bankable stars. you'll find out. you're watching first look on msnbc.
